Since 2012, Project WeCan has organised Job Tasting Programme for secondary school students. The Job Tasting Programme allows students to work in sizable companies during summer vacation. Students are required to go through normal application procedures and are assigned to mentors in their respective work places.
CW CPA is one of the Corporate Partners of Project WeCan and has been supporting Project WeCan in their programmes including this Job Tasting Programme.
This year, because of the COVID-19, the internship with our company was done in a virtual way. A panel interview via Zoom was arranged on 10 June 2020 and two webinars via Zoom were held on 10 August 2020 (Day 1) and 12 August 2020 (Day 2).
During the Day 1 webinar, our Partner, Mr. Thomas Wong, besides telling the students about himself and our firm, has also talked to the students on the Greater Bay Area. On Day 2, Mr. Ray To, our Senior Manager from the Audit Department, gave a talk to the students on Accounting and Audit industry. The daily routines, job duties and career path, etc. of the industry were shared in the webinar. We hope, the 2 webinars can provide some basic ideas of the Accounting and Audit industry to the participating students; and can be a reference to their future studies and career development.
